Scott Adcox, Sarasota, FL, piloted Nupafeed Auto Pilot and Pepe to the Intermediate Pair Horse title at Live Oak International. Looking to gain experience for his pair, Adcox had three cones faults and 10.44 time faults for a weekend score of 185.39.
"It's great that we're going to start to recognize the lower levels and what they accomplish. Thinking we can build the sport from the top down is a little silly, so we need to try and encourage the lower levels to move up and encourage more people into our sport, so we have a sport in the future," Adcox said.
In addition to the Jean Keathley Perpetual Memorial Trophy won by Chester Weber, the Anne Bliss Perpetual Memorial Trophy was earned by Four-in-Hand driver Misdee Wrigley-Miller as the most elegant lady rider. The Ed Young Memorial Trophy was presented to Anne Marie Turbe as the Most Valuable Official.
